What you need to know:

  • Across Saningo’s home, Ms Ninayai Muteluai, a mother, climbs up to the roof of her mud house to place a solar panel. It is early in the morning and by the end of the day, she is assured of bright light at night.
  • This is just the beginning of an ambitious renewable energy programme in Kajiado and Makueni counties being undertaken by Green Energy Africa in partnership with the Swedish Embassy, UK Aid and Act!
  • In both counties, about 1,000 women and youth have been taken through training on the creation of renewable energy, with another 500 being trained on entrepreneurial skills, according to Green Energy Africa Chief Executive Edwin Kinyatti.

Dorcas Seneta and her sister Ann Saning’o are having less trouble with their teachers at Eroret Primary School.
